Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R: a 250cc motorcycle with some high-tech features

Presented last year at the Tokyo Motor Show, the quarter-liter, 4-cylinder track tamer, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R, succeeded in attracting the attention of automotive enthusiasts.

The new Ninja ZX-25R makes sports bike enthusiasts turn their heads, who have not forgotten the amazing four-cylinder Japanese small cylinders produced at the turn of the eighties and nineties, with its 249 cc four-in-line and a rotation speed just under 17,000 rpm. The video shows it can reach the top speed of 162 km/h (100 miles).

The exact power of the liquid-cooled, 16-valve, 4-cylinder engine that drives the motorcycle is still unknown. But according to some reports, it is expected to make around 55-60 hp of power and 40-45 Nm of torque. This 4-cylinder engine is quite compact. According to the technician’s theoretical calculations, the piston (with the dimensions 49 x 33.1 mm) will not exceed the linear speed of 20 meters per second – a value that is considered to be the maximum safe theoretical limit.

In addition, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R comes equipped with some high-tech features like Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS), Kawasaki Traction Control (KTC), and Power Mode.

The bike is not just a concept; in fact, the company has already announced that the new ZX-25R can be reserved from April 4, and then we will know its price as well as all the final features that have not yet been revealed. Sales will start first in Indonesia and then will extend to the other countries.
